Strategic, Legal, and Ethical Issues in Providing Separate Counsel to Employees in Cartel Investigations

During a federal investigation into a claimed cartel understanding, the interests of the enterprise and of its employees may diverge. At that point, it often is necessary for the company to retain separate counsel for any executives or employees seeking immunity or facing criminal liability. The process of securing separate counsel contains numerous potential pitfalls and ethical dilemmas for company counsel.

Please join us for a webinar featuring Mayer Brown attorneys Catherine Bernard, Vincent Connelly and John Roberti, that will address key strategic, legal, and ethical issues, including:

  • Why, when and how to engage separate counsel for employees;
  • How to respond to a government request that the corporation retain separate counsel for particular individuals;
  • Best practices for company counsel working with represented employees; and
  • The legal and ethical challenges for company counsel dealing with whistleblower employees or employees with criminal exposure.
